I run Cobras. What do you need to know? They aren't cheap and my originals are for sale?

I do like the Cobra's. The sound is much nicer. Not loud at all for me but I also ride a Harley. I do believe there is a power difference, especially when towing. The fit and finish is very good.

I just ordered a set of Vance and Hines for mine but couldn't tell you anything yet. I have had V&H for my Harley and they make top quality stuff. Pricey but good quality, good HP/torque, good sound. Get back to me in a week or two and I'll let you know. You can get them at www.wingstuff.com

I have the Vance and Hines Monster Slip ons. They sound great and install easily. Low, throaty low end, with a quiet cruise tone. You do hear them at 60mph but not enough to get annoying.
